Artistic Outpost Monthly Blog Hop

Time for our monthly blog hop with Artistic Outpost and this month it is a Designers Choice.
I decided to create a piece with the newly released Springtime stamp set onto a mixed media background.
The background has been coloured with Distress Inks Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade, applied to a non-stick craft sheet, spritzed with and then mopped up with the card and dried with a heat tool. I also then dabbed the card back into any remaining ink  and dried once again.
I also added the farm in the background from the Country Life stamp set, stamped in black Archival Ink. I also included painty circles and scratchy lines using Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick Distress Paint for added layers of interest.
I added a few delicate splatters of Distress Paint, Black Soot and Worn Lipsick and added the sentiment from the Springtime stamp set.

My fellow team members have created more inspirational work to inspire you further along the blog hop.


Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
